Los Cristianos is another of the resorts that is to be found on the south coast of Tenerife and is popular with families wanting to enjoy a break in the sun.

The resort sits less than half an hour from the airport, meaning you don’t have to wait long to start your holiday once you touch down at the end of the four-hour flight from the UK.

Like many of the resorts on Tenerife, Los Cristianos features a varied range of accommodation options that are suitable for all budgets and requirements, ranging from lower end budget resorts to the best in 5* luxury.

Those who want to relax on the beach will be able to do so on sweeping areas of sand that are sheltered from the elements, making the ideal for those with children who want to wade into the water.

Along the beachfront promenade, you can find a selection of bars and restaurants whilst the marina is worth a visit to take a trip out to see to explore the local marine life on a glass bottomed boat.

A weekly market offers the chance to barter for a range of locally produced goods, whilst those who want to explore the more adventurous side of the island will enjoy a trip to Siam Park, which is a short ride away on a complimentary bus that travels across the resort.

Favourable weather conditions can be expected no matter what the time of year may be, with warm hot summers and mild winters making it a destination that can enjoyed both in and out of the traditional seasons.

Things to do in Los Cristianos

Visit the harbour

The harbour in Los Cristianos is the place to go if you fancy taking a trip out to sea on one of the various excursions that are available off the southern coast. You could head off to try and find dolphins and whales playing in the water, try a glass-bottomed boat that gives you the chance to see below the surface or take a day trip out to one of the other neighbouring islands.

Siam Park

Siam Park is one of the top attractions on the island of Tenerife and offers fun for all the family. The large waterpark complex is regarded as one of the best there is, with a myriad of different slides that includes the Tower of Power, Volcano and the Naga Racer. There’s also a large wave pool and a lazy river on which to relax.

Dine alongside the sea

There are plenty of top quality restaurants to be found in Los Cristianos and a number of those are based around the main promenade that runs alongside the beach. As well as enjoying traditional Spanish cuisine you can sample dishes from around the world - including a good old Sunday Roast if you want a taste of home.

Retail therapy

Nearby Costa Adeje might have the big malls with the designer stores but Los Cristianos is also something of haven for those who want to do some shopping during the time away from home. You’ll find plenty of small boutiques alongside the larger high-street stores, whilst the resort also has a large market that runs every week.

Monkey Park

Only ten minutes away from the resort you’ll find the popular Monkey Park attraction, which is a great place to visit if you’re an animal lover. That’s in no small part down to the fact that the park provides the chance to get up close to the animals and you can feed many of them by hand.

Hit the course

As well as the championship quality course in Costa Adeje, anyone who fancies a round of golf can do so at one of the nearby courses – which includes Golf Los Palos, which was designed by the company headed by leading player José María Olazábal.

Relax on the beach

As with the other resorts that are to be found along the south coast of the island, Los Cristianos is home to an impressive stretch of sand on which you can lie back and relax in the sun. The clear blue waters are inviting for those who want to a take a dip whilst there are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby.

Mount Teide

Mount Teide is the highest peak on the island and towers over the resorts on the south of the island. A trip to the surrounding National Park provides the chance to tackle a range of different walking trails, whilst those who prefer to take things a bit easier can board a cable car that provides a route to the summit to take in the surrounding views.
